James is the only example of wisdom literature in the New Testament. As such, it is useful in the same way that Proverbs is. James is 'telling it like it is.'

James 1:1-18 Count It All Joy - The endurance of the Christian in times of trial.
James 1:19-27 Wishful Christianity -  Be doers of the word, not just hearers of the word.
James 2 Partiality -  A discourse on the evils of being partial to the rich.
James 3:1-12 The Tongue -  The famous discourse on the power (and evil) of the tongue.
James 3:13 - 4:12 The Jealous God -  How it is necessary to choose whom you will serve, for the Lord will not honor ambiguous service.
James 4:13 - 5:6 The Mist That Is Man - The fleeting nature of riches - and man.
James 5:7-20 Coming Again -  Do's and Don'ts concerning the return of our Lord.
